Welcome to The Assumption Catholic Primary School Bathurst

Ad Jesum per Mariam
To Jesus through Mary

The Assumption Catholic Primary School, located in West Bathurst, was founded by the Josephite Sisters in 1952. Since that time the school has been committed to fulfilling Sister Mary MacKillop’s inspirational direction, ‘Never see a need without doing something about it’.

Assumption provides great opportunities for its students, offering a holistic education. It is a goal to make each and every student succeed and feel valued. We want our students to become positive, thoughtful young people who are prepared for future challenges, in an exciting and increasingly global world. Assumption wants its students to live justly, love and value God, themselves and others and positively apply what they have learned.

School Principal

Assumption aims to provide a caring, inclusive Catholic ethos where we set high standards and expectations for our students to achieve and behave their very best. We want all our students to feel a sense of happiness and belonging, as this is essential to their future success. Our well-developed facilities and dedicated staff will enable the delivering of our school curriculum in a friendly environment attuned to the needs of each individual. The school strives to educate the whole person, developing each student’s spiritual, physical, emotional and academic dimension.

Assumption greatly values its relationships with its families and encourages them to be ‘part of the journey’ as their children progress through the school. A commitment to be involved in the education of your child, through participation in the life of the school, brings untold benefits to parents. Meeting other parents and involvement in this phase of your child’s journey is a wonderful experience not to be missed.

You are invited you to visit the school and to experience yourself the enriched learning environment at The Assumption Catholic Primary School, Bathurst.
